Seen on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, John “Hippieman” Novosad lives up to his nickname with shoulder-length gray hair and some questionably legal hobbies. Combining a conversational, deadpan delivery with a knack for escalating comic absurdity, the Boulder native slips into one of his finest ill-fitting suits to perform February 22–23.
Squeaky clean but never corny, Dan McGowan commands the stage with a boisterous personality and studied bait-and-switch punch-line tactics. On March 15–16, McGowan grabs the mic to bust guts with self-deprecating zingers and an aural rendition of a prison break on the guitar.
Between guffaws, audiences recharge stomach muscles with bites of balsamic bruschetta ($4) or a southwest-chicken salad served in a bread bowl ($8). For the main event, chuckle-themed sandwiches such as the Comedy Club with ham, bacon, and turkey ($7.50) or the ranch-drenched chicken and bacon of the Standing Ovation ($8.50) leave crowds as satisfied as a dog in a frisbee factory.
Slate Entertainment's Down Under Comedy Club
Slate Entertainment's Down Under Comedy Club (a rare breed in northern Colorado) elevates spirits with standup showcases five days a week. On weekends, touring headlining comics fill the bill, while weeknight open mics put budding gutbusters through comedy boot camp. Monthly cabaret burlesque shows add a little va-va-voom to the usual har-de-har.
Meanwhile, mason jars hold super-sized drinks, which tend to feature neon-colored liqueurs that won't sting if they get up your nose. They're paired with a menu of flatbread pizzas, sandwiches, and bread bowls filled with soup or salad.
